    Theresa May fights to save Brexit deal after DUP backlash.

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 05 Dec 2017, 11:07 am

    Theresa May kicked in the teeth by the DUP.

    She is under pressure to get an agreement from the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) on the status of the Irish border when the UK leaves the EU.

    The prime minister pulled out of a deal with Brussels that would have kick-started trade talks after meeting fierce resistance from the DUP.

    The party said it would not accept a deal which saw Northern Ireland treated differently from the rest of the UK.

    Mrs May is due to update ministers at a cabinet meeting on Tuesday morning.

    Get the rest on this from The BBC HERE




    She knew she was putting her head on the block by using the NI DUP to bolster her position in Westminster, and now her dealing with that ultra-right organisation from Northern Ireland is coming back to haunt her.

    Some may say that she deserves all she is getting here.

    By allowing the DUP to get so much power in Westminster she has made a stick to beat her own back with.

    If the DUP withdraws their support for the Westminster Tories they could force another election.

    May know that she and her party would not survive another general election without the support of the DUP.

    At last, a middle of the night deal for a start to Brexit.

    Brexit deal gives Theresa May what she needs - for now

    At 0457 GMT Downing Street officially confirmed that Theresa May's plane's wheels were going up, the plans that were put in place for a middle of the night dash to Brussels were going ahead, after many calls to the DUP leader in the early hours, all that was left for the prime minister was to share croissants with Jean-Claude Juncker and Donald Tusk and, finally, agree.

    Theresa May has achieved what she wanted - the green light to move on.

    Had she not, she was in deep, deep political trouble.

    Read the whole story from The BBC HERE




    Reading between the lines it appears that the EU negotiators have given The PM a life-line as he must have warned them that if this deal does not progress the Tory government could fall.

    We still do not know the actual amount she will be willing to pay to get out, but I am sure that we eventually will find out the amount being paid.

    I was under the misapprehension that the EU and the EC do not want Britain to leave the European community, and if this is the case, surely they would try to block every move that the Brexiteers try to make.

    There will be more chances to come for this to happen in the future negotiations.

    I guess they will give in to Brexit if we pay enough in the divorce settlement.

    It is now going to look like at least 50 billion.

    They don't want us to leave, because, after Germany, we pay in the most to the EU coffers.

    Yes HG.

    That is so true that I would not be surprised if stalling tactics are the way during the next negotiations.
